Dear Sir,

I am looking to start my MBA course on fall of 2021. Please advise on the timeline for exam date to sending applications. I already have a fair idea but would like to hear from you as well.

Being a new subscriber of gmatclub, I hope I am in the right thread. If not, kindly guide me to the relevant thread.

Thanks.

Hi bb. This was extremely helpful. I have started by GMAT preparation as per the above plan and so far it has been going good. One suggestion for all the GMAT test takers out there for getting additional practise is to refer to older official guides since they update a certain percentage of their content every year. So referring to a 4-5 year older OG should more or less give you good quality questions with minimum repeats.

I need a plan to improve my verbal score as well. I just did a gmat online test, and almost not sure of all the questions in the verbal section. I only prepared for two weeks, mostly focused on the verbal. I did one practice test got 26 on my verbal, then I read the SC Manhattan book(I dont think I get the points though) and did some practice in the OG. I am planning to spend another two weeks to improve my verbal score. Anyone has any recommendations, my target for verbal is 35-36, not aiming super high.

Hello Expert and friends.
I have just completed my first kaplan mock and scored 580(Q-47 V-23)

I have gone through some concepts and video to get familiarise about topics and solved some sub 600 level questions.
Being non native English speaker I already knew it will be difficult task to score good in verbal so I gone through some basic concepts.
As Quant score seems decent as I haven't prepared much , i can definitely improve and practice some high level questions.

I would like to have your suggestions for my further preparation. I have 2 months of time and can dedicate 15 hr a week.

Any suggestions on verbal part will be highly appreciated 😊

1.As it was first mock test, I had issue with my timing however that will be improved over a period of time.
2.I felt I have good command over CR before test but I found CR challenging as well in test.
3.My plan for RC is to solve atleast 2 passage per day and slowly move to higher difficulty level.
4.For SC now I am planning to vo through MGMAT book as I have read very positive reviews for same.

My Target score is 670.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Team!

My name is Chris and I just joined. I am looking to start my adventure into the GMAT world and am seeking advice on the best methods to get started! I have read all the beginner guides and think I may start with OG and the Complete GMAT strategy guide (Manhattan). However, I am debating about going directly into the Princeton 700+ class for $1,500 or any other upper tier class. A little bit of background, I work as a full time petrophysicist and will only accept a top 5 school (these are the only schools that my company cares about). Money is not an issue and fortunately time isn't either! I would like to be prepared in 6 months but I understand this could be a 8-12 month road. It is also important to note that I am able to spend 15 hours a week studying. Could you please guide me with your excellent experience in this department? Should I go directly into Princeton 700+? Should I spend a couple months doing book work first? Is online more effective? Is Magoosh only highly rated because it's cheap? Time is more important than money so any advice is appreciated :)

Hi,

I took my first step towards my GMAT journey by writing the official GMAT MOCK. However I am not quite satisfied by my opening score!!
Q49
VA27

Overall 640

Finished the QA with 15 mins left in hand. I am not able to time up each question based on the difficulty level. For VA, I am a non native speaker and not a regular reader as well.

Looking forward to hear detailed strategies to increase my score. Target score:730-740. GMAT planned in End September 2020.
Section wise strategy would be of great help. Planning to do by self study.
Working Professional and will be able to give 15-16 hours a week.

Are all the quant and all the verbal Manhattan books equivalent to 6th edition strategy guides? Is it advisable to also get old advanced math book in addition to all the gmat books?

Hi everyone,

I just did my first practice test today using on of the official GMAT tests. My scores were:

Q 37
V 40
IR 8
Total 640

I was very disappointed with my Q score as I got 4 of the first 5 questions wrong and I feel like my score was indicative of rustiness with my undergrad not involving any maths. So basically I feel I could greatly improve on my Q score. I was quite pleased with my V score but Sentence correction seems to be my weakness here. I'm aiming for at least 720 but I think 750/760 could be achievable

Anyway, any thoughts on what I should focus on and what are the best resources to improve my weaknesses. I've got 3 months plus to prepare.

Hi Chris,

If you are able to spend 15 hours a week studying, I don't think you should have much difficulty in achieving a top score in much sooner than 8-12 months. My advice to you would be to begin with a diagnostic test. When I began my journey, I took the diagnostic at the front of the OG book. From there, you are able to get a better idea of where you stand and which areas are your weakest. Then you can target your studying to more efficiently improve your weakpoints and cut down on time. There are 6 adaptive tests that you can purchase from GMAC (first 2 are free), and I recommend you plan your studying around spacing those mock tests far enough apart to give you time to improve in between, but not too far that you take too much time from emulating the test environment. Every 3-4 weeks schedule permitting should suffice, but feel free to go at your own speed. With 15 hours a week studying however, that should be a good speed. But I can't stress enough how useful it is to take all 6 tests and emulate the test environment the best you can, i.e. use breaks as you would, don't listen to music, etc. It really helps you monitor your progress and target your studying effectively.

I can't give you advice on Magoosh, Princeton, or Manhattan, but I have heard that the questions from Magoosh are not the best representation of real questions, and that Manhattan practice tests are too difficult. Let me know if you have more questions!

Hi everyone.
I have just started my GMAT Preparation and solving through my OG 2020. I got to know that i have two free tests with the OG 2020. My question was whether I should do one of the GMAT test to know where i stand currently, or should i wait until I complete my OG? Also I heard it is compulsory to have a surname in your passport for giving the GMAT Exam, and I just have a Given name (First Name) in my passport. Sorry if i posted some similar question again, as I am new to this forum and there is ton of information out here. Thanks in advance. :)

Hi Everyone,

I took BBs advice and took a official GMAT mock to do an analysis of where I stand before starting with the preps.
Just completed that and got a 700 - Q47, V39. No preparation, just went about it, may have been some educated guesses on a few questions and a couple of random guesses too, but apart from that it was just trying to reason through the questions on screen.
I plan on giving the actual GMAT test in about a month's time. Request the experts to help with their tips for a study plan.

Need Help!

I finished all the Manhattan Guides and was doing pretty well when it came to the problem sets and quizzes.
But when I tried the CATs I consistently scored poorly :(

How to study next after following the guides?
I hope to get at least 650 but I'm not sure about my chances. Rescheduled my online exam to September just to give more time for studying and practice.

My practice scores:
Veritas (Diagnostic) - 510 V29, Q32
Veritas 2 - 560 V30, Q38
GMATPrep1 - 520, V27, Q34
GMATPrep2 - 530, V31, Q31

I'm panicking but still need to study. I'm still more than a hundred points away from my target score. What's the best strategy to do the practice questions? Native English speaker so was expecting my verbal to be a bit higher. My Sentence Correction is great, but struggling with CR and I take too long with RC (struggling with taking notes). For quant, I've never been a math guy, but the problems are tricky and I can't seem to get past the 650 questions. I've been studying every weekday for 4 hours then 4-6 hours on weekends. :(
